3-Day Chenrezig Drupchen

December 8, 2017 - December 10, 2017

| $85

Drupon Thinley Ningpo will return December 8th-10th for our semi-annual Drupchen. This is a 24 hour practice over three days. The Drupchen will begin on Friday at 6pm, followed by 4-hour practice sessions ending on Sunday at 5pm. Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Whenever we are compassionate, or feel love for anyone, or for an animal or some part of the natural world, we experience a taste of our own natural connection with Chenrezig.

Although we may not be as consistently compassionate as some of the great meditation masters, Tibetan Buddhists believe that we all share, in our basic nature, unconditional compassion and wisdom that is no dierent from what we see in Chenrezig.
Drupchen means vast accomplishment and is a form of intensive group practice. The practice continues uninterrupted, day and night, through three days. Our Drupchen will have 6 daily practice sessions beginning promptlya at 8am – 8pm, with 3.5 hour night sessions from  8pm-11:30pm, 11:30pm-3am, 3am-6:30am

Participants are welcome to practice through the entire weekend or drop in for individual sessions. Those practitioners wishing to stay overnight may use the back yard for tenting. Space can be limited, so if you wish to attend the entire weekend or participate in meals, please contact us soon at
